Surprisingly, to me most of all, I am doing really well on this here detox thingy. Today is day 4 and I feel pretty good! No headaches, no butt aches, no cravings, no nothing.
Yesterday was definitely a learning day, though. Long story short, some client came in, ate a bunch of candy that I have sitting by my reception area and then cavalierly threw the wrappers back into the candy bowl. WTF? That’s rude. And since I was already in a small state of agitation, this tossed me over the edge. Good thing I don’t keep weapons (of mass destruction) in my desk or this guy would have been long gone. Isn’t it weird how sometimes the slightest things just really rile you up? Anyway, as I was sitting there, pissed, my first thought was “What can I eat?” and it became crystal clear to me how I have used eating to stuff down my anger. Of course, I knew this intellectually but seeing it in action, right in the moment, was eye opening for sure.
I went and had another ‘lemonade’ and silently thanked this client for showing me that connection. (Still, GRRR! Who does stuff like that??)
Let’s see what lessons today brings, eh?
And now, the requisite LOL cat pic to brighten your day – don’t ask – this just cracked me up.
